Retrospect-GDS 2.0 beta 8 is now available. This will be the last beta version before the final production release. Retrospect-GDS is a web application for displaying genealogical information. The design of the application is modular so that new features can be added easily. A template system is included to make it easy to modify the look and feel. Many popular genealogy reports are available in both HTML and PDF formats. Retrospect-GDS also supports multiple languages.
Requires: PHP 4.3.0, Web Server, Database (MySQL 3.x, MySQL 4.x, PostgreSQL 7.x, Microsoft SQL (all versions), Oracle 11i (probably other versions as well), or SQLite)
From the developer’s site:
Iâ€™ve done a lot in this release to reduce the complexity of the software and to make it easier to install and modify. To accomplish this I ditched the old language translation functionality in favor of something a lot simpler. It is now possible for anyone to create or modify the language translation files without the need for special knowledge or software. Weâ€™re already up to seven languages, and I hope the new simplicity will encourage more people to submit new translations.
I also completely re-wrote the installer in this version. You now have to edit the config.php file by hand instead of filling out a form, but this really simplifies the installation. A lot of people were confused by the old installer. I modeled the new installer after the WordPress â€œ5 Minute Installationâ€.
